There is something wrong with your camera. I have the same problem, and while I am researching the problem, I am finding that others are experiencing the same thing. I use Duracells. Some times I can take pictures for several hours without any problems, other times only one picture. Every thing is fine, I shut off the camera, wait 5-10 min. and the batteries are dead. Some thing is draining a fresh set of batteries in minutes while the camera is off. I suspect Kodak has a recall or trouble sheet on this problem somewhere, but I am still looking for it.

With digital camera's you can't use normal batteries. A digital camera will drain a regular battery in nothing flat. I am a professional photographer and my camera uses AA batteries. I never use anything but Sanya Eneloop batteries. They are rechargeable and I can shoot a whole wedding and most of a reception on one set of these batteries. They aren't expensive and you can get them at most camera shops and even off of ebay. As for the batteries you use I would have to know more as to what batteries you are using to give you a clear cut answer. But I do know if you are using just regualr batteries they won't last in a digital camera. Hope this info helps.

i can't figure out whats wrong and i know its not dead the batteries work fine like i said before.
Before you dismiss the option, do yourself a favor. It only cost under 20 dollars to buy a new set of rechargables and a charger kit.
At least buy some higher mAh Alkaline batteries less then 5 dollars and give them a go. The camera is valued at over 100 dollars cost affective to try new ones. Not, used new, you need, new new!
As you said, the word, "before", so were the batteries good, before.

Everytime I put batteries in it just beeps like the batteries are low and won't turn on


I had that problem. The camera can distinguish between NiMH and Alcaline batteries. Your camera is probably set to the wrong type.
Put in fully charged NiMH batteries OR alcaline batteries, check which doesn't cause beeping. After switching on the camera search for the menu where you can change the battery type and change it to that type you want to use. Consult the manual if you cannot find the option, it's under the setup icon.

You didn't provide a make or model for the camera, but if it's a Kodak, your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. Before you pay for expensive repairs that you may or may not need, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Batteries go dead


There appears to be an issue with the S2 IS after two years.  See the reviews on Canon's website: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=322&modelid=11368#ModelDetailAct

If yours is two years old then you are probably out-of-luck.  It would probably cost more to repair than to simply replace.  As a work-around, try removing the batteries after use.

Camera battery seems to run out of charge quickly


It sounds like your battery is dead. If you get a replacement battery, it should solve both problems.

Clock always reset to default upon power up


Either the replacement battery was dead or the camera needs to be serviced. If the date/time needs to be reset every time the camera powers up, the camera is not receiving the power it needs from the date battery.
